Wish List

Home life is at the heart of a L’Arche Community. The different members of a community are called to be one body. They live, work, pray and celebrate together, sharing their joys and their suffering and forgiving each other, as in a family. -L’Arche Charter


A gift from our wish list sends the message that you care about the unique needs of each person in L’Arche. We strive to provide each home with the necessary tools to develop a healthy home life through nutritious meals, clean and comfortable rooms, and social activities that strengthen ties in the community.


Note: In order to protect our homes from bed bugs, we are no longer able to accept donations of used furniture. We can still accept gently used items that can be cleaned or put on high heat in the dryer.
